Council bill would ban alcohol at after-hours clubs

By MICHAEL CASS • Staff Writer (Tennessean) • November 11, 2008 Patrons of Nashville's after-hours clubs would no longer be able to bring their own alcohol to the establishments under Metro Council legislation being filed today. Councilwoman Anna Page said her bill would take all alcohol out of the clubs after 3 a.m. "If patrons want to drink after 3, they need to go home," said Page, a South Nashville councilwoman who recently introduced two other bills to make it more difficult for after-hours clubs to operate. The city's 14 after-hours clubs now allow patrons to bring their own alcoholic beverages after 3 a.m., when bars are required by the city to stop serving alcohol. Page said the clubs would still be able to allow live music and dancing after 3. Contact Michael Cass at 259-8838 or mcass@tennessean.com.
